  1. I’m bailing for tomorrow and will ride Sunday instead. The last Madison ride was just too gorgeous!

  2. Hello,
    I am interested in joining the ride. I am just getting back into cycling, so the 21 mile loop is my choice. I am currently not a member, however I did fill out the waiver. Is there anything else I need to do?

    1. Thanks for filling out the waiver, Bill. There is not anything else you need to do. Hope to see you on Saturday!

      1. Unfortunately, I will have to miss the ride this morning. I received a last minute call to fill in at work.
        I will join you on a future ride.
        Bill Anton

  3. I will enjoy going my slow pace on this beautiful ride. Hope some slow riders can join me!

NOTE:  We officially cancel rides only if we consider conditions to be unsafe (high winds, ice/snow, etc.).  Otherwise rides take place whether or not people comment about attending.  Each member should make their own decision about riding based on the forecast.

Important Reminder

Be sure to have the route on your phone or bike computer, and/or have a map or cue sheet.

Ride Classification

For details on how group rides are categorized, check out the Ride Classification guidelines.

Requirements For Riders

All riders are required to have a helmet; a taillight, Road ID and a rear-view mirror is strongly recommended.  You are also expected to have adequate fluids and a road-worthy bicycle in good repair.  Many rides, but not all, will include the opportunity to stop at a store to replenish supplies.

You should be prepared to fix a flat tire and perform other minor repairs on the roadside.  If you are new to cycling and are not comfortable with these procedures, don’t let that stop you.  However, you might want to talk to a more experienced member before the ride so the group is prepared to help if necessary.

Safety On The Road

The club considers safety to be our very highest priority.  Please review the information on the Safety Page before you join us for a ride.

We hope that you will find this site helpful; your questions and comments are welcomed.


Start times are based on seasonal averages.  Because of the inability to ensure everyone is informed of a last-minute change, scheduled rides will not change based on predicted weather and temperature.  Also, club rides generally will not show as “canceled” on the calendar.  All riders have their personal thresholds for temperature, wind, and moisture, and are expected to use their best judgment about whether to ride on a given day.  CBC encourages all members to exercise caution.  If in doubt, please use the comment section on the ride calendar page to communicate with other potentially interested riders.
